As the year 1349 approaches, the Black Death continues its devastating course across England, and the people of Develish question whether they are the only survivors. Guided by their young mistress, Lady Anne, they wait, knowing that when their supplies are gone, they will have no choice but to leave quarantine. Free-thinking serf Thaddeus Thurkell and his companions look for supplies and news, setting their minds on ensuring Develish's future and freedom for its inhabitants. But in this sequel to The Last Hours, when Lady Anne and Thaddeus conceive an audacious plan to achieve independence, neither foresees the struggle over power, money, and religion that follows.
